It's time to get back to the Apostles, sisters! We haven't read an apostle since week one--I figure if we do two a month, we should get through all of them by April. This week we'll read Elder Robert D. Hales' talk, "Seeking to Know God, Our Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ." Elder Hales speaks simply but compellingly of our need to really know and build a relationship with both our Father and His Son. He seems to echo the concerns of Elder Oaks, fearing that a new and stronger spirit of secularism is penetrating our culture, and that this spirit threatens our religious freedom and, in conjunction, our freedom of speech. Remember sisters, these men are watchmen on the tower--they see danger coming from far off. We can be prepared for the enemy by heeding their words.
Have a good week!
